ORLANDO, Fla. - A cashier at Orlando Premium Outlets is facing charges of fraud Monday.

Jesse George, 21, is accused of using a skimming device to steal customers' credit card numbers.

The people closest to George said they had no idea what he was allegedly doing while on the job at the outlet-mall food court's Subway.

Zach Barrett is George's roommate and best friend. He said he found out George's manager called him to tell him what surveillance video captured.

"It surprises me, it shocked the hell out of me," Barrett said.

"It's scary to think how many credit card information he's got. How much he took. That's scary," said Helen Nordby of Norway.

Deputies said they have no idea how many credit card numbers may have been stolen.

Investigators said they were tipped off about the scheme by a vigilant customer who spotted George using the palm scanner.

That customer told deputies he used to work in securities fraud and knew exactly what George was up to.

Shoppers said they can't believe it was happening at the Outlets.

Nordby said even if it's a big chain like Subway, one can never be too safe.

"Just check your bank records," Nordby said.

George has since posted bond and wasn't at his home when Channel 9 stopped by his house Monday night.
